Thursday Thankful List

It’s hard to believe this is my 50th Thursday Thursday List blog post! I’m so glad I started writing weekly thankful lists on Polish My Crown because it truly allows me to take a step back and come to reality with all of the goodness and wonderfulness in my life. In my first Thursday Thankful List post, I wrote:

Thursdays are my absolute favorite day of the week and I’ve coined them “Positive Thursday” to remind myself to be extra optimistic on this day of the week. Now, on Thursdays, I will compile a list of little (and some big!) things I’m thankful for, little things that make me smile, little things that make life so much better and so much sweeter. Life is too short and too fabulous to not take time to appreciate just how blessed I am.
